Disney's next animated movie will take us into a world where humans never evolved to take up space at the top of the food chain. Instead, all kinds of evolved anthropomorphic animals rule Zootopia, which will hit theaters in March. New pictures released from the upcoming film reveal more of Jason Bateman's fox character, Ginnifer Goodwin's bunny co-star, Tommy Chong's transcendental yak, and one character with some unexpected ties to Frozen.

Frozen fans will remember the colorful Duke of Weselton, who was touchy about two things: his height, and being called the "Duke of Weaseltown." The Duke was voiced by Alan Tudyk, who, in Zootopia, will be voicing an actual weasel named Duke Weaselton. Well played, Disney. Here they are side-by-side. Keep scrolling to see the rest of the new pictures.
